Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 78


“So what is this party about?” Silver Dash asked as she placed her helmet next to a box of odd paints and brushes that Paradox had just left on a table. His room overlooked a lot of wonderful landscapes. Since he had recovered from his depression he had been a lot more creative. Silver though seemed to be the only one to have seen a lot of his creations and she had told him that he should show some of the paintings and drawings he had done to his family. He was adamant in the fact that his family wouldn’t understand his ambition and Silver knew that was just an excuse.

“I am not sure what the party is about.” Paradox replied from the other room. “Why are you here so early? I thought maybe you wanted to stay with mom a little longer than usual.”

“Why would I do that?” She asked as she walked further into the room. “My shift was over as soon as your mom was with your dad.”

Paradox’s eyes widened as he saw her walk further into the room. “Silver, can you please wait over there?” He said vaguely.

“Oh, sure Doxy? Can you elaborate more?” She looked behind her and she stepped back until she was near the opposite wall.

“Nope, I don’t think so.” He snickered as he kept hidden.

Silver leaned against the wall and let out a deep sigh. “I wish you would hurry in getting ready. I would love to get cake sometime tonight. No matter what the party is about.”

“Cake does sound delicious.” Paradox replied as he slowly stepped out from his hiding place. Silver blinked at him. He was dressed up really nice, wearing a suit with a tie. She blinked several times.suitedDox

“Doxy?” Silver questioned him.

He smirked as he looked at her. “Yes Silver?”

“Why are you dressed up? Not that I am complaining, since I don’t see you dressed like that often. This is Sprinkle Icing’s party we are going to, and she usually doesn’t have fancy dress up parties.” Silver Dash admired him.

“Actually, I wasn’t planning on going to Sprinkle Icing’s right away.” He smirked as he put his paw through his mane. “I thought that we’d go take a walk through Whitetail Woods for a while.

“Whitetail Woods?” Silver blinked. “What’s in there?”

“Once you and I get there, we’ll be there.” He replied.

“Well, gee… I never would have figured that out Doxy.” She sighed. “Why do we have to go there?”

“It’s a secret.” He smiled at her. “Come here and I will take us there.”

Silver looked at him doubtfully and slowly walked over to him. “I hope what you’re planning isn’t scary.”

He looked at her. “Scary? I may be a monster… but I am far from a scary one.”

She suddenly blinked in surprise. “You’re not a monster.”

“I know that.” He picked her up and nuzzled her neck as they disappeared.
